U.S. News & World Report Turns to Steven Kronenberg to Discuss Blue Bell Listeria Recall

SEPTEMBER 22, 2016

A year after the ice cream company Blue Bell recalled all of its products for listeria contamination, select flavors of its ice cream were again recalled for a similar problem. The creamery blames its vendor, Aspen Hills, that supplied Blue Bell with cookie dough; however, a statement by Aspen Hills noted that “the positive listeria results were obtained by Blue Bell only after our product has been in their control for almost two months.” Blue Bell, in turn, stated that its testing identified listeria in the supplier’s unopened containers.

U.S. News & World Report turned to food safety attorney Steven Kronenberg to discuss the issue. Mr. Kronenberg explained that recalls are usually Plan B, but that it was difficult to identify anything else that Blue Bell could have done differently in this situation.
